Arrow Electronics ARW recently unveiled its first professional services automation (PSA) certified platform for Internet of Things (IoT) developers. The platform – PSoC (programmable system on a chip) 64 IoT Security Workshop Development Kit – will simplify and accelerate the development of secure IoT devices meeting the accepted cyber-protection standards.
Kit Will Accelerate IoT Projects
Created in conjunction with Infineon Technologies, the development kit is aligned with the accepted industry and government standards and regulations for electronic security, thereby helping the original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) ensure compliance with the emerging IoT legislation.
Arrow’s newly launched PSA certified kit includes Arrow PSoC 6 IoT Sensor Shield, Infineon PSoC 64 Secure AWS IoT Pioneer Kit and Shield2Go kits. The kit is operational on Amazon’s AMZN Amazon Web Services (“AWS”) cloud and comes with certified functional application programming interfaces (APIs) and an integrated dashboard for monitoring and visualization.
Built with a sensor-to-cloud security feature, the development kit is a pre-tested and validated reference design that will ensure the end-to-end security of IoT devices. Apart from simplifying the programming, deployment and management of IoT devices, the platform eases secure connectivity to Amazon’s AWS cloud services for an edge.
The kit helps OEMs quickly start their IoT projects.
